GILI HAIMOVICH
Sunday’s Virgins

I don’t know these Sunday’s virgins, that with every sip of their lazy morning beverage wonder: How will it be? To unzip and let… When it comes to purity all I know is the virgin Sunday snow. I know its trusting softness when I touch it Like a promise that has no need for fulfillment. just to possess it would be a relief. Like my father’s soft hand shushing my young self, stroking my blond-almost white hair: “Shhhhhhh… Everything is going to be just fine…”

GILI HAIMOVICH
And There’s Something About Softness 

People are still flirting, with trying to look younger, to make each other laugh. Their existence is softened by the luxuries of having some time, some needs, met. People are still eager. Not too tired of being keen. I have found out among the snow banks, pushing the stroller of my soft new baby.
